Past experience with all my previous bikes has been the manufacturer places the smallest battery in the bike that will start the bike in warm climates. Which also means placing a bigger battery in the bike is not an option. Early spring and late fall in Ontario I usually found the battery would spin the engine fast enough to start but with the stiff oil the starter was using so much of the battery's capacity nothing was left for the ignition. How do the lithium batteries in the Africa Twins respond to cold temperatures as compared to lead acid or AGM? I bought my ATAS late December of 2019 and it is sitting in storage at the dealership until late March or maybe mid March if I am lucky.
